In Canadian history, 14 women have served as a premier. Three became premier by defeating an incumbent premier.
Three times, 2 women have become premier & Opp. leader in a provincial election: PEI (1993), Alberta (2012, 2023).
Alberta has had the most female premiers with 3.

Anyone else in #Alberta feeling really queasy about today's election? I don't know if I can even bear to watch the results, and I'm usually a political junky. Maybe better to enjoy one last night of ignorant bliss and face potential doom in the morning. Born and raised in this province, and it's the first time I've ever considered leaving but here we are. 😞​

Today is the day: If you are in #Alberta, get out and vote!

The high turnout in advance voting was encouraging, but please (please!) go to your riding’s polling place if you didn’t do advance. It is now or never.

Bracing for the election results in #Alberta tomorrow. We have a choice between logic and reason and conspiracy fueled right wing lunacy and I fear the locals will opt for the latter. If that does happen, healthcare and education will be in complete free fall. This sucks.

@pinhman Conservative-libertarian govts are so focused on making the rich richer that they blindly promise and enact tax-cuts. Nothing good has come from tax cuts anywhere in #Canada either and the #Alberta election is proving that no lessons have been learned.

Who would have thought -Alberta government revenues are highly correlated with...oil price!

The NDP didn't "destroy" the Alberta economy, and the UCP didn't "fix" it. There are greater forces at play - such as world commodity prices.

If Alberta voters don't realize this, and work to improve our resilience, then we are destined to repeat our mistakes.

Remember to vote. #alberta #abelxn

Oilsands lobby group spent $1.6 million to sway the Alberta election. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) ran ads and campaigns to promote pro-oil candidates and policies. This could undermine democracy and environmental protection in the province.

Not only can we convert solar (and wind) into energy (electricity), but we now have plenty of efficient technologies to convert the energy into work, like electric vehicles, heat pumps, and industrial processes.

Follow the money, folks. Oil/gas has had trouble attracting capital for years. It's only going to get harder. Hello, #Alberta, you listening?

@Doreen32128 @sewing Oh, thanks! I’m not actually an evacuee. I’m on a planned #roadtrip. The smoke was so bad that I didn’t dare camp in #Alberta. #Montana had our smoke last week but the winds have shifted and I’m surrounded by blessedly blue skies. Still, this #ClimateEmergency means that folks everywhere are facing potential disaster.

It never surprises me when outlets like the Globe and Mail waste their column inches on BS discussion about corporate tax breaks. I am surprised that this has now extended to the CBC which spends an entire article wasting time “debating” the issue.

CBC is officially “part of the problem”.

So if this was a normal spring day I would be out in the garden helping my partner plant whatever it is that she is planting.

But there are wildfires in BC and Alberta and the Air Quality Index is 11 so I am going to be inside today. The index goes to 10 BTW.

You would think this would be a major issue in the provincial election. You would be incorrect.

As I drove out of Calgary today the smoke was so thick but just west of the city it’s been so, so much better.

I spent a lot of time this afternoon just breathing the air and looking at the blue sky and appreciating it all.

Amazing how much you take clean air for granted until it’s gone.

‘Wildfire seasons have been lengthening & fires have been burning with a greater destructive intensity.

I call it “21st-century fire” because that’s when fire really started to get weird. Before 2000, wildfire-generated pyrocumulonimbus thunderstorms were an extreme rarity.

Now they are a common feature; Alberta generated several of them in the first week of May alone’

Alberta Wildfire spokesperson Christie Tucker said there are currently 91 wildfires in Alberta's forest protection area, and 25 of those are out of control.

She also underlined just how severe this year's wildfire season has been, with 842,000 hectares burned so far.

"Last year, on this day, we [had] burned just 459 hectares. Not 459,000 — 459," Tucker said.

The air is trying to kill us in #Edmonton. 🔥💨 Wildfires are burning across the province and we may see the worst year yet for how much of #Alberta is scorched. Yes, the fires are getting worse. Yes, the #ClimateEmergency is already happening. Yes, how you vote matters. Voting for the NDP on May 29 is basically our last chance to do something, anything. #ableg #abVote #yeg #yegwx #abWildfire #abFires

Environment Canada air quality index is off the charts at 11+ and everyone outside is at risk.
Air monitor showing PM10 levels are at 739.4, meaning particulate matter in the air makes it hazardous outside.
Air monitor showing PM2.5 levels are at 407.8, hazardous, meaning particulate matter that can get into your lungs is a real danger if you're outside without a mask.

If we are going to fight against misinformation, lies and deception and promote a more informed society, we must better instill and ignite curiosity in our education streams.

This chart shows the past five days.

Huge spike in particulate matter on Tuesday and, after a brief reprieve overnight, it's surging again today. 😷
